This Week's Livingston School Achievements: May 7
A look at who has achieved what at Livingston Public Schools.
The following is courtesy of the Livingston Public School e-bulliten:
- Barnes and Noble Booksellers recently conducted their “My Favorite Teacher” contest. To participate, students in grades one through twelve had to write an essay, poem, or thank-you letter sharing how a teacher has influenced their life and why they appreciate and admire them. Three Livingston Public Schools students and their favorite teachers were selected and honored at the Barnes and Noble store at the Livingston Mall – Heritage Middle School teacher Joann Gellar and her student Briana Moritzen, Livingston High School teacher Gail Pogach and her student Sue Son, and Harrison Elementary School teacher Lauren Condon and her student Jennifer Zheng. Congratulations to both the students and their favorite teachers!
- Congratulations and good luck to the Livingston High School Wind Symphony which will perform at the New Jersey State Gala Concert on Sunday at Kean University. The LHS Wind Symphony was chosen to perform at this prestigious event based on the results of their performance at the North Jersey School Music Association’s Concert Band Festival. The LHS Wind Symphony is directed by Michael Jedwabnik.
